Ellisville, Mississippi (PRWEB) March 4, 2009
Howard Technology Solutions (Howard) announced today its qualification as an Intel Authorized Integrator and Mobile Channel Leader (MCL). As an Intel Authorized Integrator, Howard will be one of the first manufacturers to receive the latest and greatest innovations when brought to market, equaling a competitive edge in connecting customers with breakthrough technology. And as an Intel Mobile Channel Leader, Howard is among a select group of Intel Channel Partners that specialize in build-to-order (BTO) notebook solutions.
"We are excited to be selected by Intel as an Authorized Integrator and Mobile Channel Leader," commented Tim Beech, Howard Channel Manager. "We believe our Howard Channel Partners will see tremendous benefits from this program because they will be able to leverage our state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities, product certifications, and contracts while maintaining their relationship with Intel."
Launched May 2008, the Intel Authorized Integrator program provides smaller resellers with an economical avenue to offer custom systems, something often unfeasible before. "Our Howard Channel Partners have been asking for this type of program for some time and we are happy to be able to provide it. Our Partners will now be able to purchase Authorized Intel products from us while maintaining access to training and other benefits from Intel," Beech stated.
The Intel Mobile Channel Leader program consists of a select group of Intel Channel Partners that specialize in build-to-order, barebones, and branded notebook solutions. Through the MCL program Howard has the ability to offer its customers a strong supply chain, BTO configurations that include tablet PCs and 14-inch notebooks, EPEAT-certified notebooks, and the high-quality management standards of ISO 9001/14001 manufacturing facilities. But what sets Howard apart from other MCLs is that Howard offers customers access to nationwide contracts, something currently lacking in the marketplace. "By allowing our Channel Partners to leverage our existing nationwide contracts, we feel we will play a vital role in helping the whole Channel be more successful in this challenging space," explained Beech.
